Artist Profiles vs. Standard Profiles

Last Updated: May 24, 2012 04:04PM PDT

If you're a musician, or in a band, you'll want to sign up as an Artist profile. If you like listening to music, watching entertainment, and keeping up with friends, you'll most likely want to sign up with a standard profile.

  • Standard user profile navigation includes Profile, Photos, Videos, Blog, Playlists, Stream, Friends, Comments, and Badges
  • Standard users About me module includes About, Interests, and Details modules, along with a Basic Info module, and supports HTML
  • Artist profile navigation includes additional choices not found on standard user profiles, such as links for Music (standard users have Playlists instead) and Shows
  • Artist music players feature their own uploads, while music players on standard user profiles contain that user’s featured song or playlist
  • Artist General Info module combines Bio, General, and other data without support for HTML
  • Artist profiles include a music page with Songs, Albums & Singles, Also Heard On, and Playlists, but standard users’ music page is limited to playlists
  • Artist music players in the profile can't be removed or moved around like other other modules in the profile, this is to keep the focus on the artists music
  • A standard profile cannot be converted to an artist profile and vice versa
